Laura Purkiss

Laura Purkiss was born in Southampton. She joined BRB seven years ago and has danced in every classical ballet in the Company’s repertory, including Swan Lake and The Nutcracker. Alongside fellow dancer Chris Larsen, she has been involved with Ballet Hoo! since the very beginning, participating in the early community sessions where the project was first presented to the young people. She has been heavily involved ever since, aiding Desmond Kelly throughout rehearsals to ensure those participating are confident with the choreography for this evening.
